3.35/5  rDev -12.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured a copper/red color with a white head. Plenty of cascade from the grolwer purchased at Half Time. The nose was slight floral hops and fruity flavors with a little biscuity backdrop. The taste was malty, very full bodied and just a bit of hop bitterness in the aftertaste. Overall this was a beer I could easily quaff on a drizzley day such as this one, but not a mind blowing beer. Just solid, which is what a prominent beer like this should be.

Serving type: growler

355ml Bottle from Good Spirits Co, Glasgow (£3.40):
Deep copper amber with a 3cm, foamy white head that looks slightly creamy. with great retention & zero movement until you actually take a drink.

Lots of malts & sweetness on the nose with caramel too but not much hops, some earthy ones appear though. Well balanced with some floral notes with a few dark fruits. Sweet, fruity & good strength.

Sweet malts & caramel flavours that match the nose well. There is some background fruits coming through with some light, floral hops featuring as well but again it's the malts that lead the way.

Smooth & fairly light bodied, almost watery in parts but there was a pleasant sweetness throughout & a clean, slightly dry finish that has a lingering bitterness to it.

This one started very well with the smell being a particular highlight but sadly things started to fade slightly after that with the taste seeming a little watery, more so that I would have liked. Not one I'd pick up again I'm afraid.

This is one of my favorite beers. This brew is incredibly refreshing. Though it isnt the easiest to pour from the tap, the appearance is amazing. It is a nice dark amber color. The head floats atop- an aesthetically pleasing addition. When it hits my mouth I think caramel. The toasted carmel hops are prime. It is a first class amber ale that all should experience.

Serving type: on-tap
